Strat,

Give 3-27-87 a listen. The whole show smokes but the Dew is outstanding. Even Tito gives it a plug.

This one is the fastest version I've heard since the early days:

Coming out of space is always nice:

My favorite show & Dew from 1984:

thanks...I went back and checked those out again, the 84 dew was pretty uneven at first, but Jerry kicked out some nice jams (a couple of very tasty licks in the middle solo), too bad he forgot what the last line of the song was ;P...04-01-1984 is awfully good...not sure either is better than 10-12-1984 as far as 84 goes...Tito may have smoked too many Thai sticks, 03-27 is nice and the crowd appreciates it, but Garcia and Lesh blow the timing middle jam lead in riff, Garcia starts his solo in the wrong key and they nearly derail in the closing jam, lots of emotion though, but please check out 12-30-1987 http://www.archive.org/details/gd1987-12-30.sbd.walker-scotton.miller.85682.sbeok.flac16, which I've mentioned before, it's the second best version between 86-88 after 09-18-1987...I didn't list an 85 one, but 11-2 is a great choice, 06-28-1985 is another one that's good from 1985...

Nice List! Also agree 6-28-85 was most likely best of 85 - I saw 11-2 also and it was a close second.

Great job, Strato! I don't think my favorite '72 Dew was mentioned, so I'll provide it...

Also, I don't think my fave '69 Dew was mentioned either, lol:

ah yes, 05-18...my favorite version of Hurts Me Too comes from this show, Europe 72 was so damn consistent...

05-23-1969, I just checked that one out, as good as any other version from that year...

The chatter at the beginning of that 5/23/69 Dew just strikes me as quasi-apocalyptic, somehow... :\


I am partial to the '69 Dews, as I love gongs/tam tams... and there's plenty of them in the MDs and DSs that year... :D


I also forgot to mention that I have a cool version of Morning Dew... by Lulu! :D

Well Styrofoam Cueball, it is a post-apocalyptic song based on one of my favorite 1950's-60's cold war era films, 'On the Beach' (a favorite along with 'Fail-Safe', The Manchurian Candidate', and 'Dr. Strangelove'). The made-for-tv remake with Armand Assante & Rachael Ward wasn't bad either.

Check out this powerhouse version http://www.archive.org/details/gd88-06-23.dsbd.terrapin-flyer.13051.sbeok.shnf
My new favorite with the band somehow momentarily tapping into 68 sonic power to belt out this one in 88. Check out the Phil bomb in the middle solo but be careful of flying shrapnel from your sub woofers.
